Is there a dlna/upnp media player that can stream 1080p mkv/720p mkv files without installing a server on the laptop/pc?

Try Skifta from the market. Works on both my NCs.

Just tested Skifta in the NT and works great for video and photos... I don't stream any music so can't say there...

I just copied a .mkv over to the server and it found it fine. And played fine with MX Player.

That's how dlna works...there has to be a server and a client.

The only application I have found that works correctly is BubbleUPNP but you also have to install MX video player and the matroska codec because android does not natively support mkv

bubbleupnp and mobo player; I configured mobo player to soft decode. You can get the codex from here.

http://www.moboplayer.com/plugin/page/product_en

I installed all of the arm v7 codex's. With this setup, I can stream most of my mkv files from my xbmc and windows media server. Keep in mind that the mkv file format is really just a container and can contain different types of media formats.

I am only able to play 2 mins or so of my files with Skifta before it loses video and audio and I have to back out of the video its so annoying as I only have a 2gig Mirco SDcard that I share with my wii so I dont have that full space for videos. I use Moboplayer on the NT and I try using Skifta but as I said it only plays 2 mins before it stops playing.

Edit: Ok after swtiching to mx player it seems to be running much better now I have been watching one of my movies for over an hour now and there havent been any issues.

The first time you try to open an MKV container, it will lead you to the market. The version you want is ARM7.

I am able to view my upnp media server with skifta and browse my videos but I can't get any video to play. avi or mpg files.

Any ideas?

I can play avi files locally on the tablet with mx video player.
